Now it’s September I’m fully in Autumn mode and I’m gearing up for Halloween and, dare I say it, Christmas! With that in mind I’m sharing this lovely warming Butternut Squash & Tomato Soup recipe. Soup is such a comforting food, it always makes me think of curling up with a hot bowl and slurping away. Sweet squash and tangy tomatoes are the perfect partners in this tasty soup that your whole family can enjoy. It’s naturally vegan and dairy free too. Plus it’s so easy to make and leftovers can be frozen!
To start I tossed the squash in oil and sage, then roasted it for 30 minutes until soft.
Meanwhile I cooked some white onion in a little oil until soft.
To the onion I added chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock, sugar and salt. I brought it to a simmer.
Then I added the roasted squash and used my stick blender to puree the mixture.
You can serve the Butternut Squash & Tomato Soup straight away with some crusty bread or croutons, or let it cool then pop in some tupperware to have the next day for lunch, or freeze it for another day. It’s so yummy and comforting on a cold day!
